Trustees

The Trustees of St Chad's Retreat Centres which includes Shallowford House and Dovedale House in the Diocese of Lichfield.

Mr Derek Pamment,
Chair of Trustees
Derek is Chair of Trustees and brings extensive management and leadership experience. More importantly as an Ordinand following in the footsteps of St Chad, he feels it is a privilege to serve the diocese and support the two centre Directors in their ministry and mission. Having trained at Shallowford House for the past three years Derek values the retreat centres as places of learning and rest along the faith journey.

Both centres are a rich resource for the diocese and his vision is to see them used more extensively as places of refreshment and retreat.

Mr Peter Bevington Peter was involved in residential work all his working life. After time in social work and special education, he became the founder manager of The Quinta. Along with many others he was involved in this amazing tale of God’s grace which saw derelict buildings being gradually transformed into a 240+ bed multi-unit Christian conference facility. For a few years before retirement, he was CEO of Centre Ministries. He was glad to respond to diocesan requests for help with the oversight of the St Chad’s Centres.
